Magical family memories are what you dream of when traveling to Walt Disney World and it is a simple item to fulfill.
On this trip alone we have done many new and old favorites which include:
- Bouncing with Tigger when getting a photo taken
- Searching for the hidden Mickey’s that lurk in all different places
- Eating with Belle, Aurora, Ariel, Alice, Cinderella at Akershus
- Taking the entire family on Kali River Rapids together since the little guy was tall enough
- Eating at Boma still soaked 3 hours after the previously mentioned ride
- Meeting the amazing people behind Cake Wrecks
- Watching Captain EO and traveling back to 1986 with my boys
- Traveling around the world and back to complete a passport
- Trying Kim Possible
- Catching a glimpse of the Main Street Electric Parade before heading back to the resort after 12 hours
- Eating pizza at 9:30 and laughing that we are having dinner so late
The boys and I have had yet another fantastic experience, filled with memories that will last a life time.Of course, the hardest part of a vacation is packing up to head home and going back to reality. By the time you read this we will be home, in the cold temperatuers, possible facing more snow. Right now, I am still hear and heading off for our last magical day at Disney.
My question for you today:
What is the hardest part of going back home after a vacation, and how do you help to ease back into things? One other thing –> Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad!!!
Disclosure: Although we paid for our own trip to Disney World, we were given an incredible deal thanks to Disney. The sweet conference fee included 3 nights at the Grand Floridian, several meals for the entire family, 7 day park hoppers for everyone, conference/meals for me and some other items to take home. Also note that Disney never asked us to blog about this event. As a long time Disney fan it is my pleasure to share my experiences from the event.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
Laundry ; )
I usually take a couple of days to ease back into our routine.

Ugh… the hardest part for me is going back to that mountain of laundry and all the unpacking. My kiddos are little, so there is a lot to do! I usually try to tackle it all by sorting and getting out of suitcases as fast as I can. Then I can deal with the mountains of laundry, etc. later.

The hardest part is unpacking and doing all the laundry! LOL!

I would say dealing with the laundry would be the hardest part. But for me being on holiday and having to entertain the kids 24/7 is more tiring than having a normal day at home.

Happy Anniversary Beth’s Mom & Dad!!!
We too have had an incredible holiday here at Disney but we old folk are exhausted and looking forward to sleeping for a few days. Quite possibly literally! Not this weekend though…we’re picking the grands up on the way home so sleep will still elude us until next week! hehe

The mountain of laundry. And getting back to a regular schedule vs. the carefree one. ;)

The unpacking, laundry, getting caught up on both snail and email.
The laundry and the lack of routine with the kids, they tend to be crabby and tired
The hardest part for me is actually going back home,lol. We usually take a day or two to unpack and be lazy before things go back to normal.

I’d say getting settled at home again is the hardest part. I never look forward to getting the kiddos off of their vacation mind-set while tackling the laundry and getting things put away. It always works out, though. :)

The hardest part for me is having to cook my own meals instead of just choosing a fabulous meal from one of Disney’s restaurants!
Since we are DVC members, I do all my laundry before we leave. Makes for a much better re-entry to reality. ;) But when we go somewhere other than Disney? Yeah, the laundry part stinks! (sometimes literally!)
As a mom..unpacking for everyone else and the darn laundry!
I love your picture- everyone looks great!
M.T. to your parents too :)
Have a great Friday!
Unpacking for sure. To be honest, I am normally ready to get back to reality, be in my own bed, own home, ect. But I hate to have to unpack..ugh…

I usually make sure we have a couple days to relax. This way we can ease back into our routines.

I’ve not yet had a vacation that makes me not want to go home. I’m usually with the inlaws, or somewhere that just makes me uncomfortable.

The laundry is no fun, but getting back into the routine is the most challenging. I look forward to returning home from long vacations, and then when I get there, I can’t wait to go traveling again!
